This article emphasized the importance of implementing a feature matching process during assessment to match the strengths and needs of the users to the features of an AAC system. Case studies were used to illustrate the feature matching process. It should be noted that both students discussed were able to use direct selection to access their communication systems. Had an alternate access method been required, alternate systems and access methods would have been explored in conjunction with an occupational and physical therapist to identify the most appropriate system.
